PACCOR extends product shelf life at ROSUPAK 2011

04.05.2011
PACCOR, a European-based manufacturer, has launched a new barrier packaging solution, which is made up of multi-layer structures.

Designed to block humidity and oxygen, this solution helps to extend the preservation of products by up to 24 months, while food products packaged in this way retain the highest level of quality. PACCOR will unveil this innovation at the ROSUPAK trade show, which will take place in Moscow (Russia) from 14 to 18 June 2011.

The PACCOR Group has developed a multi-layer plastic-barrier sheet intended to package food products that do not require cool storage for preservation. The shelf life of products packaged with this coextruded sheet can be extended by as much as two years. PACCOR will present its novel packaging solution at the ROSUPAK trade fair, in Moscow, in mid-June.

PACCOR offers four basic reel structures, which are intended for FFS (Form/Fill/Seal) machines. The PS/Evoh/PE structure is intended for the packaging of stewed fruit, fresh fruit, cold cuts and desserts, while the PP/Evoh/PP structure, which is microwavable and sterilizable, is designed for the packaging of baby food, pre-prepared food and pet food. The PS/PE structure is suitable for cheese, fish and for industrial applications, and the PS/Evoh/PS form is designed for the packing of fresh products.

As each food company has its own specific requirements, PACCOR also manufactures made-to-measure sheets in accordance with its customers’ specific requirements and in order to achieve a perfect match with their packaging machines.

In order to increase barrier properties, PACCOR is also able to design a sheet made up of nine different layers, incorporating an added barrier to protect the packaged product from light. The thickness of each layer and its formulation can be adapted upon request. Sheets can also be produced in a two-colour version, with white on the inside and a colour on the outside: this is designed to meet the growing demand from companies to make packaging relevant from a marketing standpoint.

In terms of equipment, PACCOR has a fleet of high-quality modern machines, which are fitted with the latest technology, such as autoflex, and an online thickness-measurement tool. Thanks to its machines, PACCOR can provide a constant and accurate spread of the master layers (EVOH, PE and bonding agents).

Im Focus: Giant Magnetic Fields in the Universe

Astronomers from Bonn and Tautenburg in Thuringia (Germany) used the 100-m radio telescope at Effelsberg to observe several galaxy clusters. At the edges of these large accumulations of dark matter, stellar systems (galaxies), hot gas, and charged particles, they found magnetic fields that are exceptionally ordered over distances of many million light years. This makes them the most extended magnetic fields in the universe known so far.

The results will be published on March 22 in the journal „Astronomy & Astrophysics“.

Galaxy clusters are the largest gravitationally bound structures in the universe. With a typical extent of about 10 million light years, i.e. 100 times the...

Im Focus: Tracing down linear ubiquitination

Researchers at the Goethe University Frankfurt, together with partners from the University of Tübingen in Germany and Queen Mary University as well as Francis Crick Institute from London (UK) have developed a novel technology to decipher the secret ubiquitin code.

Ubiquitin is a small protein that can be linked to other cellular proteins, thereby controlling and modulating their functions. The attachment occurs in many...

Im Focus: Polymer-coated silicon nanosheets as alternative to graphene: A perfect team for nanoelectronics

Silicon nanosheets are thin, two-dimensional layers with exceptional optoelectronic properties very similar to those of graphene. Albeit, the nanosheets are less stable. Now researchers at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) have, for the first time ever, produced a composite material combining silicon nanosheets and a polymer that is both UV-resistant and easy to process. This brings the scientists a significant step closer to industrial applications like flexible displays and photosensors.

Im Focus: Researchers Imitate Molecular Crowding in Cells

Enzymes behave differently in a test tube compared with the molecular scrum of a living cell. Chemists from the University of Basel have now been able to simulate these confined natural conditions in artificial vesicles for the first time. As reported in the academic journal Small, the results are offering better insight into the development of nanoreactors and artificial organelles.
